Things To Know About College Life
Young Adults and Adults
Starting college is a step forward for most young adults with a larger amount of freedom and responsibility. For many college students this is the first time they are living away from their parents and family members. The “college years” are usually transitional years that bring challenges such as time management, financial issues, homesickness, relationship problems, depression, anxiety, problems with school performance, partying, substance abuse, and feeling isolated without friends.
Many young adults struggle in isolation with depression, poor grades, and family dysfunction. Its' important to note that college campuses have counselors, psychologists, and other mental health professionals, paid for by the student body, that can provide help during crisis. When these services are inadequate, overwhelmed, or unavailable to students, it may be appropriate to seek help outside of campus.
Education is an investment and success in college can set the pace for a fruitful and rewarding career.
